Summary
Formed in 2006 by a group of friends who shared a love for traditional mountain music, Rich and the Po' Folks is a premier old-time string band offering a lively blend of fiddle tunes seasoned with ballads, Carter Family songs, and contemporary mountain songs. Their music draws on the heritage of Appalachian fiddlers, banjo players, singers, and songwriters. While most of the band's repertoire originates from eastern Kentucky and southwest Virginia, hot spots for one of America's great musical traditions, fiddler Rich Kirby has performed not only across the region but also nationally with a wide range of well-known musicians. Spotlighting the band's lively performance style, this program is hosted by Jesse Wells of the Kentucky Center for Traditional Music at Morehead State University.
